Let’s Get to Quilting!

DSC_0324

Happy March! I recently embarked on a journey to make my own t-shirt quilt after I got the best gift of all time… a sewing machine! I had been wanting one for a while now so I could patch up some of my clothes instead of buying new stuff (money saving tip right there). But I quickly found out there are so many awesome projects you can do with a sewing machine! Continue reading

7 Things I Learned After Moving Out

Man covered in cardboard boxes - moving concept

It’s been almost 3 months since I moved out of my parents’ house. After college, I moved back home to save money while I searched for a job. In a year and a half, I completed an internship, worked a job from hell, then ended up in my current role at the best company ever! Needless to say, it’s been one hell of a year and a half, but I’m still feeling the effects of the transition from college to adulthood – especially with the whole move.

Now that my life is a little more stable and I am finally settling in to my new place, I am slowly starting to realize how impactful my decision to move was. From a long and trying period of figuring out logistics to the short period of adjustment in a new city, I have learned so much about myself… or as Kylie Jenner would say, “I am realizing stuff.”

Here are the 7 things I have learned since moving to my new apartment: Continue reading

DIY Plant Stand Makeover

DSC_1042

Since last year, I have accumulated 14 plant babies. It all started with my HORT 2000 class at UGA taught by the sweet David Berle in Spring 2016. Mid way through the semester, one of our assignments was to identify, repot and maintain an indoor plant until the end of the semester. I got a banana croton, which I did not know until Lowe’s replied to my tweet (thanks for saving my grade, Lowe’s).

Back & Better

Oh, how good it feels to be back! Since August, I’ve had a lot of changes in my life – both good and bad. I’ll have to catch you up soon with a series of new blog posts. But until then…

Check out the resolutions I made for myself in the new year. Please hold me accountable! Usually I go with something simple like “be a better person” or “work out more.” This year, I took a different approach that is a bit better suited for my mindset.

I like to compartmentalize my life just to stay organized, so I figured that compartmentalizing my resolutions would be more beneficial to me. Check out how I broke it down below.

Monday Mornings

This is me on Monday mornings. No makeup. Messy hair. Eating cereal out of a Tupperware container. This is the epitome of a Monday morning.

As I get dressed for class and eventually put on some eyeliner and concealer, all I can think about is how I would have NEVER posted a picture sans makeup like this a few years ago.

Lush Ultrabland Cleanser Review

*Not my handwriting

It’s product review time! The last (and first) time I went to Lush, I asked for some products that would help clear up my skin and solve the whole oily skin problem. Maggie, the lovely lady who helped me, recommended Ultrabland. She said she used it regularly as a makeup remover and cleanser, and when she tested it on the back of my hand, I was all about it. But I wasn’t ready to drop some big bucks, so I asked for a sample instead.

Recently, I grew some balls and tried it for the first time… and I did not like it at all.

Conquering Social Media

As I sit here shoving Cheetos in my mouth, I am also thinking about venturing into the scary, unfiltered and sometimes unfriendly realm of social media.

I have created a Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Bloglovin’ page for The Kelly Charm, and I would love it if you all could be my first set of followers.  I’d love to follow all of you back as well.

Stay updated with my latest posts and don’t be shy! I love talking about all things life, career and beauty & fashion.

If you have any advice on how to keep up with social media, please throw some knowledge my way. I would love some support as I take a leap out into the social media world.

And as always, THANK YOU for reading The Kelly Charm!Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 4.40.29 PM
